How do you set a passcode for a Sony ericsson j108a so that only I can use my phone


You can stop unauthorized use of your J108a phone by activating phone lock protection.

After activating, you will be asked to enter your phone lock code every time you restart the phone.

The default phone lock code is 0000 (zero-zero-zero-zero). It is recommended that you change this to any four-to-eight-digit personal code.

Note: It is important that you remember your new code. If you forget it, you need to take your phone
to your local Sony Ericsson retailer.

To activate the phone lock:

1. Select Menu > Settings > General > PIN codes > Phone protection > Protection.
2. Select 'On' if you want to enter a lock code every time you start the phone, or select 'Automatic' if you want the code to be entered only when the phone restarts after a new SIM card is inserted.
3. Enter the phone lock code (0000 by default) and select OK.

To unlock the phone:

• When 'Phone locked' appears, enter your phone lock code and select OK.

To change the phone lock code:

1. Select Menu > Settings > General > PIN codes > Phone protection > Change code.
2. Enter the old code and select OK.
3. Enter the new code and select OK.
4. Repeat the code and select OK.

how to lock the keys


If it is a flip phone, most flip phones dont offer the ability to lock the keys because they are thinking there isn't a need for that since the keys are hidden by the top of the phone, if it is a candybar phone usually the menu key and the * (star) key are used to lock and unlock your phones, if its a smart phone there may be some options in the settings. You didnt mention what brand your phone is based on the model number sounds like a samsung. you can go to samsungs website and research the model number and usually they have information on how to do everything you need with the phone. most cell phone carriers have this info too, you may have to dig threw the website a little though
